I decided about a month ago to order two led grow light for my plants. I did this for two reasons. One, I didnt feel like the best window was good enough as it doesn’t get direct sun for long. Two, I thought it would be good for dormancy when I want to grow other non-dormant plants. So today I had people come to do work in the basement and moved the plants to the window last night, and wow! The growth in just 12 hours was crazy. They did ok under the lights as far as I can tell but now i’m wondering if the window is actually a better choice. Does anyone have any similar experience? Maybe it was a fluke.

Can you put them somewhere outside? No? Well that's okay. If your plants did a great job by the window, then good! I had my plants by a very sunny window facing Southwest, until I had to move. They didn't had good light for 2 weeks. So my aunt gave me a LED light, and guess what? They did AMAZING JOB! Their traps turn red within a week. Some of my traps were burned, because they have to adapt to the light, but no worry's they will make new traps that adapt to the light! So window or light? Well if you want heathy red traps, you should go with the light, but the window should be good enough as well. And what is your window facing? If it's North, than you should use the light, but East and South should do the job. I hope this helps you, and good luck on your plants! :D
